Staking out a position that’s roughly somewhere between “nerdy” and “goofy,” the two-man band known as the Front Bottoms sound like the kind of indie rock that a sitcom on a second-tier cable network has a character play when they want to signify quirky creativity. There’s image-dense and humorous lyricism coupled with relentlessly upbeat folk-rock arrangements that, at first blush, make these guys sound like a community college take on the Mountain Goats or a less-studied version of the Weakerthans, but with a more pronounced debt to jokey ’90s college rock. Every single track on the group’s new album, Talon of the Hawk, seems custom-crafted for ecstatic live singalongs, with pounding, straightforward acoustic guitar chords and lots of “whoa-oa”s and “hey-hey”s, so this show is bound to be a rollicking blast. – Jason Ferguson
